Constitutional law is the foundational area where your rights collide with government actors like states, schools, the police, counties and towns. We sue counties, schools, towns and government contractors in the Shenandoah Valley, from Winchester down to Roanoke, as well as in Loudoun, Fairfax, Prince William and Fauquier County.
We can litigate, negotiate, and advise you on parental rights, transgender identity, LGBTQ protections, social services, the police, prison rights, cannabis regulation, free speech, freedom of religion, and abuse of power by states, towns and counties in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and D.C. It is both our pleasure and our honor to advise, defend and protect your liberties as an American.

Our Expertise in Constitutional Law
What is the Constitution? Why does the Constitution matter? What effect does it have on your
life? Is it even relevant in the twenty-second century? These are some of the questions we talk about in our office. Our answers to these questions run the gambit, but that’s not why you’re here. If you clicked on this page, you are either curious, which is great, or you have a problem and you need our help (which is at your Service). So let’s talk about what falls into the practice area, constitutional law, and whether or not you might want to reach out to us for legal help.
We handle first Amendment cases. This Amendment protects your right to speak, to worship religion in the way your conscience dictates, and it prevents the federal government from establishing one religion over another. We also handle Fourteenth Amendment cases—for those of you who watch a little television, that refers to “section 1983 cases” where a citizen can sue a state actor for violating their federal “substantive due process rights.” Whoa, what does that mean for you, the consumer who is looking for help? You’ve heard of the Loudoun County school board case where the girl was sexually assaulted by a transgender boy? That case involves establishment of religion when it runs up against nondiscrimination policies (like those that are incorporated in the 14th Amendment). Do we handle this sort of case? Absolutely yes.
With experience finding creative ways to interpret and enforce your rights, and a love of both the practical and the ideology basis of your state and federal Constitution, we will fight with you and for you—to ensure that your inherent rights to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness are preserved and kept safe.
